La Decima - The Story: Rafael Nadal reflects on first-round win

Wawrinka's win percentage on grass during his career is substantially lower than on the other surfaces and Wimbledon is the only grand slam where he is yet to reach the semi-finals. Nadal has claimed four titles on the tour this year, winning 46 matches and losing just six in a stellar 2017.

"Never I thought my nephew can win 10 times here at Roland Garros".

The Aegon Championships will feature world number one and defending champion Andy Murray, U.S. Open champion Stan Wawrinka, 2014 victor Grigor Dimitrov, and last year's runner-up Milos Raonic.

"So I'm going to be playing a regular schedule for the second part of the season". I'm going to keep playing. I want to be a champ on the match courts. If I don't feel that, then probably my chances are not good.

- Nadal condemned his great rival to his worst ever loss in a Grand Slam event. World number one Novak Djokovic has never triumphed in Paris. "For me it's about getting back to winning ways, where I left off in Miami". "For him it's going to be all about staying injury free", he added.

Federer chose to skip the French Open this year and Wilander believes it was the right decision as he maintains his confidence going into the grass court swing of the season. The seven-times Wimbledon champion, who skipped the whole clay-court season in order to focus on grass and the subsequent North American hard-court stretch, is competing this week in Stuttgart and had his first practice session there on Sunday.

"So that's why we have chose to turn to Paul, who has a lot of experience, and I hope that I will be in the right direction".
